In accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date all the time. Moreover, this information is openly visible on WHOIS lookup sites and while this may not be a problem for organizations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anybody can see their names and their personal email and home addresses, particularly in an age when identity theft is not that atypical. Because of this, domain name registrars have come up with a service that hides the details of their clients without altering them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s enabled, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS enquiry. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your personal information with some country-code ones.
